Solar thermal plan for coal-fired power stations
This is great news:
Energy company Alinta has told business representatives at Port Augusta in South Australia of a plan to convert its two coal-fired power stations to solar thermal technology.
What we don't know is the real and true reason why this gas-producer giant is betting on solar rather than their "own product". ABC assume that "They envisage the gas price will rise sharply within the next few years and make gas more of an expensive option."
Whatever it might be, the outcome is great and lets us hope this to be the first in a long row of correct decisions in this respect!
